Beautiful Anna Lawrence, with a successful career in broadcasting and marriage to a wealthy man with a luxurious country home, has everything a thirty-two year old could wish for. Until she finds herself unexpectedly pregnant, too late to do anything about it. Her sister Becky longs for children but her husband, a struggling chef, has told her they have to put family life on hold for a few more years. Anna's pregnancy uncovers fractures in the sisters' relationship going back years, and the ramifications affect everyone in their lives.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Brilliant new novel . . . Few contemporary British novelists writing today explore the messy tangles of close human relationships with quite such warm perceptiveness as Brookfield * Henry Sutton, Mirror *
I savored every second of this deeply satisfying book. Amanda Brookfield goes from strength to strength. Her best yet. Treat yourself * Patricia Scanlan *
The novel walks a line between comedy and wrenching sadness. It is fluently written and its depiction of domestic chaos and a man's bewilderment when unexpectedly faced with a young son's needs is all too recognisable * Elizabeth Buchan, The Sunday Times on A Family Man *
Brookfield draws her readers into identifying with her believable characters and their recognisable dilemmas, and then observes them with a cool, ironic humour . . . in the end, through her characters, Brookfield skilfully illuminates the relationships, dilemmas and compromises that define so many lives * Sunday Express *
I savored every second of this deeply satisfying book. Amanda Brookfield goes from strength to strength. Her best yet. Treat yourself * Patricia Scanlan *
Superb in its minute observation * Northern Echo on The Lover *
Witty and engaging * Family Circle on Single Lives *
Brookfield has a true gift of narrative that draws the reader into the world she is painting... Unusually, she manages to make the reader care about the characters who are all realistic * The Magazine on A Family Man *
Perceptive and very readable * The Times on Walls of Glass *
Brookfield skilfully illuminates the relationships, dilemmas and compromises that define so many lifes * Sunday Express *
